Description: Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle is widely known as a Catholic author, EWTN host and inspirational speaker. She was a close friend of Mother Teresa and has written other books about Mother’s influence on her life. But until now, Donna-Marie has not written much about her own background. She grew up in a large Catholic family, where she learned to seek God for help and strength. As an adult, she suffered many harrowing setbacks including pregnancy loss, serious illness, divorce and single motherhood. She fought through a custody battle in which she needed to defend her own reputation and the safety of her five children. Through these trials, Donna-Marie kept the fire of her faith burning. She joins us today to share her story.
